Dr. Stacey Butterfield Named State Superintendent of the Year
The Oklahoma Association of School Administrators (OASA) is pleased to announce Dr. Stacey Butterfield of Jenks Public Schools as the 2019 Oklahoma Superintendent of the Year. Dr. Butterfield was officially recognized Wednesday at the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) Summer Leadership Conference.
"I am extremely humbled to receive this award, and I am incredibly grateful to CCOSA and OASA for all they do to support school administrators,” stated Dr. Butterfield. “It is an honor to represent my colleagues from around the state who work tirelessly to advocate for public education here in Oklahoma. It takes a team of dedicated people to make our districts operate effectively and provide the best educational experience for our students. I am thankful to work with so many talented individuals in Jenks, and around the state, who are committed to ensuring success for all students."
Over the last 28 years, a dream that began in a first-grade classroom has carried Dr. Butterfield all the way to the role of Superintendent at Jenks Public Schools, one of Oklahoma’s largest and most successful districts. Dr. Butterfield’s entire career has been devoted to shaping students and their educational experience. She served Jenks as a Building Principal, Director of Communications, Human Resources Supervisor, and Deputy Superintendent before assuming the title of Superintendent in 2013. Extensive experience as a teacher and as an administrator has provided Dr. Butterfield with a unique understanding of the needs of students and staff members as well as the knowledge required to effectively manage all business aspects of Jenks Public Schools.
OASA has 20 Districts that consists of multiple counties and in April, Dr. Butterfield was one of 20 superintendents named OASA District Superintendent of the Year. Eligible OASA members are nominated and selected by their peers in their OASA District.
